We all love snapping the best pics for our social media feeds, and exploring those picture-perfect destinations is always a lot of fun. With the help of Ted’s Cameras, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite photography locations in Adelaide and South Australia to level-up your Instagram grid.
The best photo spots for landscape lovers
#1 Lake MacDonnell
This pretty pink lake is on everyone’s SA road trip bucket list and is one of the most Instagrammableplaces in Adelaide. The high salt concentration of Lake MacDonnell means the water reflects a bubblegum pink colour – a stark contrast to the blue water lapping at the opposite shoreline. The landscape photos of the lake are renowned on Instagram and will score you some serious likes.
#2 Flinders Ranges
The 600-million-year-old landscape of rocky gorges, undulating mountains and expansive plains is excellent for exploring, and it’s a bonus that the destination is perfect for adventure lovers searching to snap thrill-seeking pictures to post on their Instagram. We recommend sparing a few days for this adventure and visiting between April and October.
#3 Adelaide Botanic Gardens
The Adelaide Botanic Gardens stretches across 50 hectares of manicured gardens and is home to more than 20,000 plants. Here, use a DSLR or mirrorless camera to capture close-up, macro shots of wildlife, native fauna and pretty flowers. The Botanic Gardens is the perfect backdrop for photoshoot locations in Adelaide, with something always blooming year-round.
The best photo spots for foodie fanatics
#4 The Barossa Valley
From the famous palm tree-lined Seppeltsfield Road to the rolling vineyard views of the Barossa Valley, you will see photo opportunities everywhere you look in this award-winning wine region. Visit one of the many wineries (there are more than 150 vineyards to pick from), indulge in a fine-dining lunch, and snap a selfie with friends while you’re there!
#5 Sunny’s Pizza
This Solomon Street haunt is known for its funky fit-out, slices of eggplant parmigiana pizza and its glittering mirror ball. Not only is this super cute venue a great spot for after-work drinks, but it’s also one of the most instagrammable places in Adelaide.
#6 Hart’s Mill
This Port Adelaide destination is where trendy coffee shops, street art and heritage-listed watering holes abide. Find some of the best photoshoot locations in Adelaide – with the Wonderwalls on many of the Port buildings making for great backdrops and cafés, like Folklore, the perfect location for foodie Instagram shots.
The best photo spots for wildlife warriors
#7 Glen-Forest Tourist Park & Vineyard
A trip to the Glen-Forest Tourist Park & Vineyard is a must for families visiting Port Lincoln. Only a 15-minute drive from the seaside township, it’s home to a dedicated 120-acre animal park and 80-acre vineyard. The Segway tour through the vineyards makes for a great photo opportunity, or capture the kids cuddling koalas and feeding baby animals on camera.
#8 Eyre Peninsula
The Eyre Peninsula is nature’s playground and one of the best photography locations in South Australia for wildlife lovers. Visit the Head of the Bight and see Mother Nature in her element. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot the migration of the southern right whales. Use a mirrorless camera and a telephoto lens to capture the wildlife phenomenon. The best time to spot whales is August, and we recommend setting aside a few days for this trip.
The best camera equipment to take with you
When choosing the best camera to use, it comes down to preference. For people on-the-go and who are newer to photography, a mirrorless camera is a good option due to its compactness and ease of use. Its small size also means you can easily fit it in your camera bag and carry around! Interchangeable camera lenses and manual shooting options mean that Instagram shots can be tailored to the destination, capturing incredible depth and range.
Both mirrorless and DSLR cameras are available at Ted’s Cameras, a leading Australian camera store that has been serving avid photographers for over 50 years. They sell 100% Australian stock, with no grey-market stock available, and have a 14-day exchange policy.
Pop into Ted’s Cameras for all your photography needs and the latest equipment. And now that you know some of the best photography locations in Adelaide, you’re ready to shoot incredible content for your Instagram!
